Ibsen Studio Policies
Students are considered registered when an enrollment form and tuition have been received. We do not send confirmation letters. We will contact you if we are unable to place you in the classes of your choice. We do not reserve classes by phone.
Tuition is due at time of enrollment. We do not give refunds with the exception of preschoolers who are unable to participate in class within the first two weeks.
Missed lessons should be made up within the months that have been paid. No refunds will be made for students who do not complete classes. Please do not make-up missed lessons during Parents Watch Week.
Parents Watch Day
Parents, friends and relatives are welcome to observe dance classes the beginning of November and March. Please do not make-up missed lessons during Parents Watch Week! Drama & Voice classes do not have parents watch days. Please check the studio calendar for specific dates.
We do not close for Monday holidays. We do have a Winter Vacation and a Spring Break. Please check the studio calendar for specific dates.
We do not cancel when public schools are closed for bad weather. Please call us if the weather is questionable for morning classes or at 4:00pm for evening classes.

Recital and Costume information
There are separate performances for different age students. The older students’ recital includes 2nd grade and up dance students. The younger student recitals will include Preschool, Kindergarten and 1st grade dance students. Separate performances make the shows shorter and more convenient for students and parents. There will be a $40.00 recital fee per family to help cover rising costs of theatre rentals, required security guards, insurance, etc. Recital costumes range from $40.00 to $50.00 and are ordered in December. You will be billed for costumes in November. All costumes are made to order and are non-refundable. If you choose not to participate in the recital after costumes have been ordered and paid for, there will be NO refund.
No gum, candy, food or sodas are permitted in the studio!
